Armand Hammer shares new single "The Gods Must Be Crazy"

Armand Hammer shares the third and final single, “The Gods Must Be Crazy,” the track was produced by El-P of Run The Jewels. This latest offering is another indication of the expanded community of collaborators and production Armand Hammer brought into the fold on We Buy Diabetic Test Strips, out Friday via Fat Possum Records. The album also includes previous singles “Trauma Mic,” featuring Pink Siifu and produced by DJ Haram, and “Woke Up And Asked Siri How I’m Gonna Die” produced by JPEGMAFIA.

“woods and ELUCID have something special going and I am happy we got together on this jam,” El-P says of collaborating with Armand Hammer. “I think we made a banger.”

ELUCID and billy woods‘ new project arrives two and a half years after Haram, their labyrinthine collaboration with The Alchemist. We Buy Diabetic Test Strips is an entirely different beast, incorporating live instrumentation and featuring an array of producers including JPEGMAFIA, EL-P, Kenny Segal, DJ Haram, Black Noi$e, Preservation, August Fanon, Steel Tipped Dove, Child Actor and Sebb Bash.

Of his experience working on the album, ELUCID shares, “This sort of reverse engineering of talented players who met for the first time in the studio jamming to pre-recorded beats before splintering off into new directions. Being in the room quietly watching 4 people fumble around each other’s sonic worlds before finally locking into a solid groove was a clear and obvious magical moment for me.”
